    Well, I finally broke down and bought it, and I'm impressed. It's not crashed on me once (knock on wood).

    The first unofficial patch should be out fairly soon, fixes quite a few things as well (quest fixes, item placement etc.)

    I sunk in so many hours into this game, i ended up putting it down once i got battlefield 3 though.
    On my main file i was running around with a Khajit in full daedra armor, had archery and sneak skills leveled up nicely to offset the heavy armor weight and would use a daedra bow at distance, daedra dagger for sneak kills (there over powered lol) and would fight anything that survived that unarmed as khajit+daedra gauntlets= over powered.

    I miss this game but gosh, battlefield 3 online multiplayer is far more addicting x.x

    I believe Headbomb's Weapons and Armor Fix adjusts these levels to make them more balanced.

    For PC users I also highly recommend Sounds of Skyrim (Wildlife and Dungeons are done so far), adds a lot of immersion, along with SkyUI (requires Skyrim Script Extender).

    I've lost many nights and weekends to this game. It's so hard to turn off once you are playing.

    I am really stinkin' angry! I have a level 63 warrior...great weapons and armor...and this character is horribly glitched! I have several locations that I don't dare enter, as my Xbox locks as soon as I do. I can fast travel, but if I run the trails/roads, then I will have a lock within ten minutes...I have over 200 hours invested in developing this character...

    Anyone got any ideas?

    I do not, but you might want to sign up for the forums over there, forums.bethsoft.com and post in the XBOX area. They may have suggestions. I know Bethesda has worked with some to get their saved games to find bugs.

    Some of the ones they've found manifest with particular combinations of things, certain quests open in certain stages, with particular items etc. It gets fairly complex.

    Thanks, I'll give them a try.

    UPDATE: It appears that after reaching higher levels (and accumulating a lot of stuff, visiting a lot of places, etc.) each time you save the game the savefile becomes too large. This is causing repeated freezes for a lot of Xbox 360 players. Time for a new patch, come on Bethesda!

    Makes me glad I'm on PC. Of course I have several fix mods loaded and waiting for the first version of the "big kahuna".

    Beta 2 of the first version of the unofficial patch is out. Fixes a ton of bugs. Keep in mind, the unofficial Oblivion patch took something like three years before he considered it complete. These are jut a couple of guys working on this as a hobby.

    Well, the console patch (1.5) is in the hands of Microsoft for "certification." It'll be another week or three before we see it. Until then, I have quit playing anything.

    I don't know if it applies to XBox, but I had the same problem with PS3 version.

    I disabled auto-save features and the lockups went away. Not ideal because you have to remember to do manual saves regularly.

    The 1.5 patch for Xbox did not resolve my issues...best guess, delete the character and start over. Thanks, Bethesda!

    Check your keys. There is a bug where the Museum key will duplicate itself. If you have a ton of them find a chest in a dungeon (do not just drop them) and then put them in there and leave.

    I just started playing this game after I shelved it 3 days after release day due to broken quests. It's too bad this game still has so many issues.

    Oh and I don't know why everyone is afraid of the dragons. Get a horse and see what it does to a dragon. IMO the horses are the ones that will take over.

    That bug has been driving me bonkers.

    In related news, the first DLC has been announced.

    You know, it's odd how the board inserts that smiley, but at least the link works.

    And the DLC is well worth the 1600 Microsoft points required to download it!

    PS3 user here, I cant wait for Dawngaurd.

    My main character is level 81 all leveled up legit ( I didnt use any glitches or bugs for free level ups). So its nice knowing there might be some monsters that can actually stand a chance against my character.

    Im currently running a Altmer in Nightangale light armor that has been fortified to the max armor rating *567, you can go further but it wont matter*, Also rocking a maxed out daedric sword and maxed out nightangale blade. Not even ancient dragons or giants survive my power hit with both swords on master difficulty :<

    I had to delete my "leveled" character...still working on a new one...Nord warrior currently at Level 57...wearing Dawnguard armor at 718...I know, overkill. Dragonbone bow with dragonbone arrows, war axe, and greatsword...dragonbone weapons do more damage than daedric...all with fire damage enhancements and maxed out tempering.
